It could be that the wires to the cartridge are off, or that the cartridge is faulty. If you touch two of the 4 wires to the cartridge (when removed) with you finger and the amp on you should hear a buzz on either channel (assuming it's a stereo deck). If you do that's a sign the cartridge has gone. If you don't there's something wrong with the pre-amp in the main part.

SOURCE: Technics SL-L3 turntable no sound until warm up

either the cartridge is bad in the phonograph tone arm.  Or the pre-amp in the stereo is bad...remember that the turntable is the only accessory that uses the pre-amp input on the stereo.  I'm betting the pre-amp is bad.

SOURCE: I just inherited an old Zenith console turntable

Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"

If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.

Hope it helps

SOURCE: Record player - sound only plays out of one speaker

Your tracking and anti-skate are not set correctly.

If you have the manual for this unit, it should have directions for setting these.

SOURCE: everything works on my record player but my turntable doesnt spin

This happened to me tonight. I had the same problem, to activate the player on you need to move it to the right until you hear a click. If you don't do it it won't start. Even if all the power is on. This should fix everything!

Can i play records through my sherwood rd6108 receiver? When i try to play a record i get no sound no matter which channel i use.


Record players require a PHONO input on an amp.
Most amps no longer have this, so you will need to source out a pre-amp for the record player, and then you can plug the record player into the pre-amp and then hook the pre-amp into a tape, DVD or AUX input.

Can you give me some infomation on a his master voice record player model number is 1620


HELLO

This sounds like a radiogram you have there! Quite an old soldier, made somewhere between 1955-1960 with what appears to be a 4 speed record deck with autochanger.

If it all works then great. Sorry to say that it is not worth loads of money though - very little value I'm afraid. That's as much as I know.

Hope it helped a little.

Could be a bad patch cord, a setting on the mixer, a faulty mixer (unless it works ok with other amps), or a dirty control on the Sony amp if it has analog controls. Have you tried connecting other sources to the Sony?
